Featured Review: Revolt: Book Four of the Resistance Series by Tracy Lawson
About This Book:
The Explosive Conclusion to the Award-Winning Resistance Series To Deny Freedom is to Deny the Human Spirit. Fugitive Resistance fighter Tommy Bailey has come out of hiding to help rescue Careen Catecher from the clutches of the Office of Civilian Safety and Defense, where she’s been held and interrogated for information about the rebel group. The OCSD is poised to launch the Cerberean Link, a security device that will put all minors under constant surveillance under the guise of protecting them. Fearful that OCSD director Madalyn Davies’s bid for control won’t stop there, the Resistance puts its own plan in motion to sabotage the Link and oust Madalyn from the directorship. Just when everything seems leveraged in the Resistance’s favor, treachery, lies, and long-held secrets threaten to derail it all. Will even a life together on the run be impossible for Tommy and Careen? Or will the Resistance’s efforts convince the public to put their fears aside and demand freedom?

A thrilling finale to a great series.
It picks up right after the events of the third book. Careen is a mess, suffering from PTSD after what she'd been through. But she has Tommy to bring her back. The resistance needs her. The country needs her. The OCSD is working furiously to activate the link that would put minor's under their control, allowing them to be tracked. It could destroy everything. But the resistance has a plan.
What I loved:
Once again, the characters that Ms. Lawson creates are vibrant and well-developed. I felt everything they felt. There's something so honest and endearing about Careen and Tommy in particular. Jumping into this book after reading book three months ago is like reuniting with old friends.
The OCSD is wonderfully evil - at least the people running it are. It makes for the perfect villain that every dystopian needs, creating a sense of urgency that keeps you flipping pages long after you should be asleep at night.
What was okay for me:
This one took a bit more time to get into than the others, but maybe only because it'd been a while since the previous book.
An exciting conclusion to a series that every dystopian fan should jump into without hesitation.
